  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Cream together butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and sugar. Add egg, milk and vanilla. Beat well.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Beat on low speed until stiff dough forms.
  • Fold in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips.
  • Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Top each cookie immediately with a peanut butter cup, placed upside down. Remove to wire rack to cool.
  • Well the cookies are cooling melt the rest of the chocolate chips in the microwave stirring every 15 seconds until melted.
  • Once the cookies have cooled, cut liquorice into 1 inch pieces. Using melted candy, attach 4 legs to each side of the peanut butter cup near the very bottom, and stick two eyes on top. Let set until chocolate is firm.


* I bought both my candy eyes and rope at Target if you can not get these M&M's or another small round candy would work for the eyes. For the legs you could cut up black licorice or just use chocolate cover pretzel sticks.
